What is a Global Fellowship (GF)?

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships aim at enhancing the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers (postdocs) through advanced training and international and intersectoral mobility. Global Fellowships are open to researchers currently within or outside Europe who want to move to a Third Country (TC, outgoing phase) and then come back to an EU Member State or Associated Country (MS or AC, return phase). For Global Fellowships, the TC is subject to the mobility rule (i.e. the researcher must not have lived, worked, or studied in the TC for more than 12 months during the 3 years prior to deadline). The duration of the fellowship is 24 to 36 months and primarily covers the salary of the researcher. The return phase of 12 months is mandatory
